I love this book. So glad to own it! Possibly a difficult question to answer, but do you know how many of Mel's 300+ books you own? I think I have about 15 so far... a long way to go. :)

I agree this book is one of my faves! Mel's Yogi is the best in my opinon.
Good Question, I think I have roughly 50 maybe 60 but that includes books, comics, magazines and puzzles. Hopefully I'll be able to post a good portion of it within 09!
I still have a long way to go as well! The hardest part is finding the titles of what he illustrated I wish there was a list somewhere of everything he's done especially Hanna Barbera related. I might start my own just to get the ball rolling.

So glad to be of service! Especially for a true Mel fan like yourself! What can I say he's phenominal.

That's a lot! Nice. That'd be great to see a list, even a list of all his cartoon books. I should look at the Golden Legacy book to see how many of his titles they included.
